We collect “Non-Personal Information” and “Personal Information.” Non-Personal Information includes information that cannot be used to personally identify you, such as anonymous usage data, general demographic information we may collect, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, preferences you submit and preferences that are generated based on the data you submit and number of clicks. Personal Information includes your full name, nickname, email address, date and place or birth, and relevant information about your parents, siblings, children, and grandchildren. We also collect and store information related to your education and work history, which you submit to us through the set-up process, all for the sole purpose of enabling you to create an interactive life map, interactive life timeline, and engaging introductory video for your life story.
1. Information collected via Technology
To activate the Service, you need to submit your legal name and your email address. To use the Service thereafter, you need to submit additional Personal Information about your family, your schooling, and your work life. This information is not sold or shared with any other party. We use the latest data security technology to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information.
In an effort to improve the quality of the Service, we track information provided to us by your browser or by our software application when you view or use the Service, such as the website you came from (known as the “referring URL”), the type of browser you use, the device from which you connected to the Service, the time and date of access, and other information. We track this information using cookies, or small text files which include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to a user’s browser from our servers and are stored on the user’s computer hard drive. Sending a cookie to a user’s browser enables us to collect information about that user and keep a record of the user’s preferences when utilizing our services, both on an individual and aggregate basis.
The Company may use both persistent and session cookies; persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your session and until you delete them, while session cookies expire when you close your browser.

II. HOW WE USE AND SHARE INFORMATION
In general, the Personal Information you provide to us is used to help us communicate with you, and to help you create life stories. For example, we use your Personal Information to create for you an interactive Life Map, an interactive Life Timeline, and a narrated slide show video that narrates and introduction to your life story. You decide who may view your stories and your family records. We do NOT make any of your stories or records publicly available unless you specifically authorize them to be made available in your preference settings.
We may share Personal Information with outside parties if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to meet any applicable legal process or enforceable governmental request; to enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations; address fraud, national security and law enforcement requests, or technical concerns; or to protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
III. HOW WE PROTECT INFORMATION
We implement security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. Your account is protected by your account password, and we urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe by not disclosing your password and by logging out of your account after each use. We further protect your information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technological security measures including encryption, firewalls, and secure socket layer technology. However, these measures do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. By using our Service, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
